Bubbie’s Magical Hair by Abbe Rolnick is a delightful children’s picture book about the adventures and travels that Bubbie goes on with her long graying hair, trailing and whirling around herself and the other people and creatures that surround her. The narrative style is poetic and insightful and needs no rhyme scheme to guide it. The illustrations by Lynda Porter create a sensation of warmth with smiling faces and twinkling eyes. A color palette that is on a softer pastel side graces each of the pages, where the colors are beautifully muted in some areas and brighter in others to create an impactful scene, to draw the reader's eye. The narration and illustrations work together fabulously to create a wonderful cohesion of both the world of words and the world of art.
Bubbie’s Magical Hair by Abbe Rolnick and artist Lynda Porter caught me off guard by the profound sweetness that they were able to generate in this children’s picture book. As someone with very long hair, who recently had a bit of a cut, I could relate even more to Bubbie when her locks got shortened. There was a sadness at first, watching the pieces of hair fall to the wayside, in that they had traveled so far with her, but also the happiness of new growth that would come. Bubbie’s Magical Hair by Abbe Rolnick and artist Lynda Porter is a children’s picture book that will touch every heart that reads it, old and young.
